Moisturizers -Skinceuticals - Renew Overnight Oily

I've been using this for close to two years and it has become a staple for me for nighttime use. It has made my skin clearer, with pores that aren't that clogged up anymore and appear smaller. It clears zits fast as well. It isn't a miracle worker, but I'd say pretty close to it! Be sure to slap on sunscreen if you do use this.
Cleansers -Shu Uemura - Pore Clarifying Foaming Cleansing Water

I've been using this cleanser for about a year and a half, and I think it does a great job for my super oily but deydrated skin. I used to switch around my cleanser, and have stuck to this one for quite a long time, simple fact being is that it's a good foaming cleanser, and this in fact is best for oily skins! I don't really feel any residue after using it. I've recently begun to use it with clarisonic mia, and it does work well with it as well, extra foaming action, so you might actually need to use less! One bottle lasts me for about 6-9 months, so very worth its price tag!
It's a lovely semi-opaque girly pink with two types of glitter (normal pink micro glitter and a slightly larger sort of aurora borealis glitter)...I put it on my fingernails...which looked great (kinda looked very Katy Perry-ish!) and then I had the crazy idea of putting it on my toe nails...which looked absolutely crazy fab!!
I've used SKII products previously like the essence, mask, cleanser and clear lotion and they all did nothing for me. That was about 4 years ago...I got a trial size of the Repair C recently just for fun. This stuff works for me so well! I am so glad I bought it. It is slimy-ish, yet goes on well, not sticky. The effects can be seen when you put in on at night and wake up in the morning. Skin definitely feels smoother. My pores have definitely become better and even my beautician says so! That may also be because I alternate this with Skinceuticals Renew Overnight Oily which I will review soon.
Shampoo -Philip Kingsley - Moisture Balancing Shampoo

This is a great shampoo for chemically treated hair. I have oily scalp and dry ends and I chemically perm my hair so this works fantastic for me. Best used with the Moisture Balancing Conditioner!
This mosturiser is great for oily skins and open pores. Works extremely well with other RMK products as well. I think it has improved the texture of my skin. Love it!
This works well with the RMK liquid foundation. Have not tried it on its own yet, but I think all RMK products work very well when used together, but not if you mix it up with other brands of makeup. The transparent colour is great as it doesn't mess up the colour of foundation. I feel it has a more silicone-y texture than creamy.
I like the colour match, if you are of Asian skin you will definitely find a colour for you. It is defnitely not a matte kind of foundation, and I was dubious as I have the most oily skin in the world. However, using this foundation (together with the SPF 31 Face Protector and Make Up Base Mat), it gives a dewy, non-oily look, it also looks great with loose powder. I do need to blot my face in the middle of the day, but the foundation still holds itself well till late in the day. Pores are covered satisfactorily. Have not had any major breakouts yet. Does not oxidise and thus no funny change in colour after application. I hate the container, product gets on the top of the inside of the cap, and it looks messy.
This is a great product! Non-oily, which is great for oily skins like mine. Only gripe is that it absorbs a little TOO well, that it is hard to blend! But definitely a keeper!
This is a product sold exclusively in Asia. Specially formulated for Asian skin, and more importantly, the humid weather in Asia. I have incredibly big pores and oily skin and most foundations just melt away in an hour. But this foundation is a Godsend and it works incredibly well to maintain a matte complexion. It is a powdery sort of mousse liquid foundation. Stinks a little, but you get used to it. I do get oily by the afternoon, but a dab of blotting paper will soon set it in order! Do purchase if you are around Asia and you have large pores and oily skin and live in a hot climate!
Received this from a swap recently. I LOVE it to bits. I even headed to Harrods to buy an extra bottle so I will never run out of this...I hope! This is a really old romantic rose which IS sort of granny in a way, but who cares if you love rose scents! It lasts pretty long on me!
Amazing mask. I was looking for an alternative to Fresh Rose Mask, which is exorbitantly expensive. This is a cream mask, never really fully dries down. Does sting a little bit, but that goes away. Makes my skin less ruddy, not a noticeable brightening effect, but definitely makes my skin less red. Doesn't break me out and doesn't upset my super oily skin.
Moisturizers -Korres - Alpine Herbs Anti-Stress Energizer

I am totally in love with this mosturiser. It's a cream, which scared me at first as I have extremely oily skin and have never used a cream before. But it's so amazing in that it never leaves the skin oily!!!! Don't slather this on, rather build up gradually, you may find a white film still there but that will sink in soon. No reactions/break outs. I'm beginning to have a serious Korres fetish! One thing is...yes I hate that I dip my fingers in it!
I tried this perfume a few years ago for just one day and it made such an impact on me but I had only had time to go to the store to get it yesterday. I'm very glad I did! Ormonde Jayne perfumes are truly unique and just simply amazing. The scent unfolds itself throughout the day and you just can't stop sniffing yourself! Frangipani is a five petal flower that grows in the tropics, commonly seen garlands you get in Hawaii! I never knew they had scents, at least not where I grew up. It has base notes of vanilla and musk which are my favourites and middle notes of rose and tuberose as well. There are more notes to this perfume and but I have my favourites in so I'm not complaining! You have to try their tester kits!
A lovely blusher but soooo cheap! I LOVE it! It does become very powdery after use and does get messy in the pan, but the colour is so great and comparable to so many brands I've used it's worth it! It's a very light coral/peach colour and slightly shimmery that goes with my asian NC30 skin very well.
